Talk radio checks in with Labor Rights advocates Jeff Ballinger and Debby Cheng Yi Yi.

Holiday Season talk radio with William Seaman and Joe Uris - This Wednesday at 8AM, Joe and Will check in with labor rights advocates Jeff Ballinger and Debby Cheng Yi Yi. What are the working conditions in the factories that produce those holiday gifts during this hectic shopping season? Jeff Ballinger is probably best known for his work on bringing to light labor conditions for workers producing Nike shoes, but his labor rights research and advocacy goes back to the Clothing Workers union's "Farah pants" boycott and the JP Stevens campaign (remember Norma Rae?). Debby Cheng Yi Yi works for the Students and Scholars Against Corporate Misbehavior, based in Hong Kong, and has extensive experience with the production pipeline for those popular new iPads.

The Spiritual War on the Uterus in Rick Perry’s Texas and Beyond

Lisa Loving hosts a discussion of the "Spiritual War on the Uterus in Rick Perry’s Texas." She'll speak with journalist Sarah Posner about the religious crusade against abortion in the Lone Star State. Posner details the shift in religious efforts against abortion in Texas, away from a national push led by major evangelicals towards a more local, militant strategy. While abortion hasn't played a central role in the presidential campaign, that, too, is a product of the shift in strategy: anti-choice activists are focused not on overturning Roe v. Wade (although that remains a crucial goal).

Hosted by Lisa Loving

The WILPF is working to draw attention to release of the film, The Whistleblower, this weekend at your downtown metroplex. Members will be leading discussions of the issues after the film this weekend. We're joined by WILPF members Lucinda Tate and Georgia Pinkel.

This film, which opens Friday, chronicles the true story of Kathryn Bolkovac (played by Rachel Weisz), an American woman who brought to light the sexual atrocities being perpetrated in Bosnia with the complicity of U.N. and U.S. security contractors.  WILPF International Secretary General Madeleine Rees (portrayed in the film by Vanessa Redgrave) was at that time head of the Women’s Rights and Gender Unit for the U.N. Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.  She played an integral part in the effort to expose trafficking. WILPF Portland members will be on hand after te film to answer questions and distribute information about United Nations Resolution 1325, a 10-year-old promise that women would be treated as agents of peace and reconciliation, not just as victims of war and violence.

Bo Rinaldi on a Plant Based Lifestyle

Categories:
program date: 
Fri, 07/22/2011

Host Robyn Shanti welcomes guest Bo Rinaldi, who calls himself a “bloodless revolutionary” and believes that the only way out of this matrix of Corporatocracy we find ourselves in, is by adopting a plant based lifestyle.

Bo is one of the pioneers of the organic movement in the US and has been a vegan since 1960, when at 12 years old, he cured himself of asthma and other allergies by following a vegan diet in just two weeks. What Bo proposes now is that a simple plant based diet can cure what ails us, saving us tons of money, support our local economies better than any other action and free us from the matrix of control known as 'food', which actually kills us, medicines that mask symptoms and businesses that pillage the lands and peoples.

Willamette Riverkeeper and The Big Float

program date: 
Wed, 07/13/2011

Hosted by Lisa Loving

What do you know about the current state of the Willamette River? Want to know more? Tune in as host Lisa Loving welcomes Willamette Riverkeeper's Travis Williams, Executive Director and Riverkeeper, and Will Levenson, organizer of The Big Float as they discuss the Willamette River and a new project to raise funds for the Willamette Riverkeeper to provide physical water access to the Willamette in downtown Portland.

Levenson says the idea of THE BIG FLOAT is simple yet powerful. In a city that prides itself on being green and having a strong environmental conscience, it does not reconcile that the mighty Willamette has been proverbially locked in the closet underneath the staircase and brushed aside as a joke. Today, the Willamette River has a very bad and undeserved wrap for water quality.

THE BIG FLOAT’s aspiration is that within the next 5-10 years the Willamette River will be embraced and reclaimed as a recreational resource.
